Morning Ladies and Gents


Less than one month to go before it's officially summertime in Bermuda and we can go back in the water – yippee!  If you're at a loose end today, then there are a few last-minute events below for your consideration:


  • I know it's short notice but, those of you that love olde worlde-style pomp and circumstance, take note – the Annual Peppercorn Ceremony for this year is today. During this ceremony, the Governor will will receive the Annual Rent of one Peppercorn for the State House from the Master of Lodge St. George and then will hold a meeting of the Governor’s Council, attended by the Premier and Cabinet Ministers. This quaint tradition includes lots of period costumes, military uniforms, a parade and a horse-drawn carriage, all helping transport you back to 1815 when the ceremony first started. As usual, the Governor will arrive at King’s Square at the very precise time of 10.58am.


  • Again, sorry for the short notice but another old favourite is back for the summer season with the return of Harbour Nights tonight!  This will be in the usual time-slot from 7pm until 10pm and will continue up until September 5th. Most of you are very familiar with this but for any newbies or tourists reading this, every Wednesday of the summer months, Front Street is closed to traffic and instead is filled with vendor stalls with various arts and crafts, a food court, late night shopping until 9pm and live music and entertainment.


  • Another new regular event for tonight is Bermuda’s newest happy hour event, The Mingle at O Bar.  This event was created by The Tofumedia Group  with the intention of allowing young professionals to come together, meet new people, and create new connections. This will take place every Wednesday from 5pm until 8pm with the signature drink, The Mingle Martini, drinks specials and complimentary hors d’oeuvres – here's the flyer!


  • Charlar, a social group aiming to bring together Spanish speakers of all levels, presents its first Noche de Cine (Night of Cinema) tomorrow at 6pm in the Queen Elizabeth Hall  at Bermuda High School for Girls on Richmond Road.  The chosen film is drama Los Lunes al Sol, starring Javier Bardem, which will have English subtitles , and Karen Jones from Discovery Wines will be offering a white and red Spanish Wine option.  For entry to the film, a $5 donation is suggested and $5 per glass for wine tasting with proceeds going to Bermuda High School for Girls.  For more information, see their website at http://charlarbermuda.wordpress.com or email charlarbda@gmail.com.


  • Also tomorrow, the Youth Library will be hosting Family Story Night from 5.30pm until 7pm.  This event aims to encourage and promote family literacy and quality family time and families are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner and blanket to the library for an evening of stories, music and magic. The cost is $5 per family and there will also be door prizes. For more information, contact Marla L. Smith, Youth Services Librarian at 295-0487 or mlsmith@gov.bm – here's the flyer!


  • Tomorrow is Haiti Awareness Night at BUEI from 7.30pm with a screening of the documentary, Haiti Village Health, by Bermudian filmaker Robert Zuill.  This will be followed by a presentation of Haiti Village Health Clinic and Programs by Dr. Tiffany Keenan, Founder of Haiti Village Health and a discussion by Wesly Guiteau and Nicola Feldman on Experiences with Haiti Village Health.  This event is free – here's the flyer!


  • Whether you're a student returning home for the summer or you just like to dance like a student, the Annual Welcome Back College Party at Pier 6 promises to kick-off the summer season this Saturday, April 28th.  From 9pm until 2am, there will be special guest appearances, giveaways and music from Imega Sound, DJ Rusty G, YGS Entertainment, Supatone Sound and DJ Smokey. Tickets are $20 (free for ladies with college ID before 10.30pm) and available from Bermuda Bistro at the Beach, Kit & Caboodle or Event DJs - here's the flyer!



  • The 2012 AGM for the Association of Canadians in Bermuda will be on Wednesday, May 2nd in the Argus Building on Wesley Streeet.  The meeting starts at 5.30pm but cocktails will be served from 5pm.  All are welcome, particularly if you are interested in becoming a member – here's the flyer!


  • This year is the 25th Anniversary of the Catlin End-to-End, which will be on Saturday, May 5th.  Full details can be found on www.bermudaendtoend.bm.  To help load you up with carbs in advance of this, La Trattoria will be having an All-You-Can-Eat Pasta Buffet on Wednesday, May 2nd from 5.30pm.  Tickets are $25 and are available at La Trattoria.  For more information, call 295-1877 or e-mail info@trattoria.bm - here's the flyer!


  • Mother's Day is coming soon and, to help you find that special gift, Wanderlust Boutique and Rene Hill Originals brings you Night Market, a unique shopping event at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club on Friday, May 4th. From 5pm until 9pm, there will be a cash bar with Happy Hour drinks prices, as you peruse Thai jewelry, t-shirts and decorative gift items from Wanderlust Boutique, traditional Bermuda Cedar handbags, summers scarves, clothing and beach glass crochet jewelry from Rene Hill Originals  and ElleTee original pieces.  Cash and credit cards will be accepted - here's the flyer!
